Locals in Vilnius love their burgers. The burger craze came about a few years ago and stayed for good. But where exactly should you go to find some of the best burgers this town has to offer? Here are a few ideas.
On the weekend, you can’t go wrong with visiting Uptown Bazaar for brunch. It’s a space with a small market and multiple restaurants all under one roof, which makes it especially great for groups – everyone can just order what they want and then grab a table together. And on Sunday, locals typically head to Kablys for brunch – be sure to book a table in advance, otherwise you may miss out on one of the best buffet brunches in town.
Peronas is a bar that’s located on platform 0 of Vilnius’ railway station. It hosts events all year long, but summer is when it really shouldn’t be missed. There’s ample room to sit outside and watch the trains come and go.
Organising a barbecue doesn’t have to be hard – driven by this idea, a few years ago the owners of Wolf’s Garage started offering grill rentals at a lovely spot in Užupis. You show up, pay for a grill and throw whatever you like on it.
